The whole idea of prams in poverty is to provide the most vulnerable people in the area with suitable transport for their baby's. I'm a mother of 2 and understand the financial strain a new baby can have on a families finances.
Alot of 2nd hand prams being sold on the likes of Facebook and gumtree are just not fit for purpose and can potentially be dangerous to the child. To get a decent 2nd hand pram will still cost £100 if not more.
We are asking for funding so we can provide basic but new travel systems to these vulnerable mothers. This will ensure they have a suitable pram for their child from birth till they can walk.
To recoup some of the costs and to enable us to work with more parents we will ask each recipient for a small donation towards their pram.
Once the ball is rolling and we receive funding we will be communicating with local health visitors, sure start centres and also social services.
Any donation is much appreciated by ourselves and future uses of our scheme.
